Is There a Treatment for Autism

There is currently no known cure for autism. That is not to say that Autism can not be treated. Therapies and behavioral interventions are designed to remedy specific symptoms and can bring about substantial improvement.

The ideal treatment plan coordinates therapies and interventions that target the core symptoms of autism: impaired social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and obsessive or repetitive routines and interests. Most professionals agree that the earlier the intervention, the better.
